look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours a clear, yellow-hued body with a short-lived, very thin, white head.

Smell: Unimpressive, not too particularly appealing aroma of sugar laced apple, grape juice.

Taste: Candied sweetness, though little flavor of malts present. White grape, apple fruitiness. Minor spiciness. Transient alcohol quality. Low gum hint. Fairly sweet on the finish with a final touch of fruit.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Just a notch above medium carbonation.

Overall: A bit too basic, a bit too sweet. PIG. OUT.

Bottle I bought at a Cora in France. Best by 27/02/14. Served in a goblet glass at about 5-6 degrees C.

A) Beautiful pale (similar to a Stella Artois) yellow beer with about half a finger of head.
S) Boozie. Wasn't expecting that. I can't smell much else, that's why this was my lowest scoring section.
T) Typical blonde. Forward and back-of-the-tongue maltiness that's pleasant and not overpowering. The aftertaste does remind you there's some alcohol in there (8.5%).
M) Amazing. That is all.
O) I wish I bought more of these. Take my advice and if you have the chance to buy one of these buy two. No, make it three.... of ten. Great beer.

Purchased in a 22 and pour into a stein. I know that's not correct for a BSA but that's all my parents had available at their house. You work with what you've got.

A very rich, hazy golden color. You can tell by the activity in the glass that it is high on the carbonation. Average head, leaving minimal lace and I drank thru it. The aroma was decent, very apparent smells of sweet fruitiness and coriander? I believe. I actually really enjoy the taste of this ale and it's stronger notes of alcohol and yeast. Little to none on the hop flavor and bitterness. The spiky carbonated feel was nice as well. High on the carbonation. I realize from tasting and reading that there are many other superior BSAs to this one but I continue to buy it on occasion. It works for me.

Pours nicely with a decent head, that goes away pretty fast leaving lots of traces on the glass. Smells of grains, some fruitiness and low spicy yeasts.
Wheaty malts and grains, white bread, quite pronounced, balanced by mild fruitiness (acidic apple and pear, low oranges and lemon zest). Mild caramel, with some hints of honey but mostly Belgian sugars, cloying and lingering. Nicely spiced with clove, vanilla and some low coriander. Alcohol is warm and prickles a bit because of the carbonation, that's quite high in the beginning. But goes away in time, making this beer a bit syrupy even. Hops are fresh and mildly bitter in the finish, complementing the sweet notes.
A nice BSA, but doesn't really stand out from others of its kind.

I pour it "easy like sunday morning" and am rewarded with two fingers of bubbly white head. The head goes down after a couple of minutes, leaving a decent amount of froth. A sheet of lace clings to the side as it's consumed, and slowly slides back into the drink. The body is the color of urine, but I don't mean that as a negative.

Yeast and sour apple immediately greets the nose. Grass and spice flesh it out.

Wheat and yeast start off the flavor tour. A bit of sour apple chimes in with a nice spiced package. Sweet grass and clove finish it off.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied. Almost seems to glide over the tongue, but leaves a little residue as it passes. Refreshing, with a slightly dry finish.
